Opioid Dependency

Opioid Dependency: An Urgent and Pervasive Public Health Crisis

Opioid dependency is characterized through the compulsive yet detrimental use of opioids driven by changes in the brain’s chemistry which are brought on by prolonged and untreated opioid abuse. If you’re like thousands of Americans, however, you don’t need to be told what opioid dependency is. Year after year, we see more and more of our friends and loved ones succumb to these dangerous and powerfully addictive drugs. Last year, there were over 63,000 drug overdose deaths in the United States, an astonishing figure driven largely by the American opioid addiction crisis. Recovery Unplugged offers compassionate and effective music-based treatment for opioid dependency. Call us today at (954) 703-1975 to find out more about what we can do for you and your family.

What Does Opioid Dependency Look Like?

The widespread and pervasive dispensation of prescription painkillers like OxyContin, Vicodin, Percocet and more over the last two decades has changed the face of American drug addiction. There is no longer an “average” drug addict. There remains, however, classic and universally recognized behaviors that suggest a dependency issue, some of which include:

  • Deception Regarding Prescription Painkiller Abuse
  • Hiding Pills in Strange Places
  • Stealing Pills from Family or Friends
  • Legal Troubles Due to Opioid Use
  • Decline in Career or School Performance
  • Erratic Changes in Mood and Disposition
  • Physical Signs (Track Marks, Skin Blemishes, Weight Changes, etc.)
  • Change in Sleep Patterns
  • Constant Preoccupation with Opioid Use
  • Withdrawal Symptoms

If you’re noticing these symptoms in yourself or a loved one, it’s imperative that you get professional treatment straight away before the opioid abuse escalates any further.

The Human Toll of Opioid Dependency

Opioid dependency has transcended the inner-city heroin addiction stereotype that many have entrenched in their minds, and has brought rampant rates of overdose to every portion of the American landscape. The disease creates serious and often permanent damage in users’ brain chemistry and central nervous system. It can also destroy their relationships and their overall quality of life. In order to reverse the potentially devastating course of opioid dependency, it’s critical that users seek treatment immediately. Some of long-term effects of opioid dependency can include organ failure, seizure, coma, permanent brain damage and more. Don’t let these devastating effects claim you or your loved one.

Treatment for Opioid Dependency

Treatment for Opioid Dependency

Effective and comprehensive opioid dependency treatment should include interventions to address the physical, psychological and lifestyle damage brought about by the disease. This means compassionate, safe and effective medical detox to help patients safely overcome their withdrawal symptoms; comprehensive rehab and behavior modification to help patients address the root causes of their conditions and develop healthy emotional coping mechanisms; and aftercare plans geared toward patients’ specific lifestyles to help them avoid relapse. Treatment should also include targeted supplemental therapies to help patients heal as individuals. Customized opioid dependency treatment will help patients address the specific causes and consequences of their disease and improve recovery outcomes.
